    Here's something I was unaware of that may interest you. If you don't like to narrate your own YouTube videos and not have closed captions available as a result of that. You can manually add captions (subtitles) to a video after uploading it.

    Some more recently discovered (for me) YouTube closed caption options.

    If you click the three dot menu under the currently playing video...

    ...and that video has closed captions, you should see a 'Show transcript' option in that menu, click that and all the closed captions should show in a transcript window beside or below the video.

    The captions will highlight in sequence as the video plays and if you click any one of the captions, the video will jump to that position. There is a three dot menu at the top right of the transcript window where you can toggle the timestamps on and off, I guess that makes it better for copy pasting the captions should you want to.

    That's ugly. Sorry Dodgy but I don't know how to fix that.

    Weird, I restarted the app a couple of times and then restarted the computer, all to no avail. Finished the round as it was, next round it's fine.

    After a recent interaction with a friend, my curiosity got the better of me.

    If, in notepad or one of these message, you hold down your (left) ALT key, then type the numbers 0 1 8 9 on your number keypad, then release the ALT key, what character, if anything, appears?
